    I am like that with the sweetcorn, I always plant to many but then it is very hit and miss with the potting compost.

    I've only used peat-free multi-purpose and had good results with everything I've sown.

    Must be a plant swap in your area?

    Had 4 people over to give me a quote for landscaping. Not one fudger came back with an actual quote.

    these guys make it sound like they're doing me a favour.

    I'd guess you were hoping for a bit more from 'seedy Sunday' ?

    Farkin' A, hombre. You can never have too many.

    I'm a homegrown tomato lover. Prefer to opt for Heirloom seeds or plants. As May begins to warm up I'm preparing to plant seedlings grown in my greenhouse featuring yellow and green zebra varieties. Lovely sharp flavours from both, but more savoury from the latter. Plus I've added the deep purple Paul Robeson and a robust orange Mr. Stripey varieties as well as various cherry tomato plants so we have something to add to salads throughout the summer and fall months. Plus freeze some and add zest to pasta sauces during the dark, sub-zero mumphs of the Canadian winter.

    Flamin' Nora, our garden is shaping up nicely for this summer.

    First off, the back yard - our lot is 177 feet deep in the heart of downtown Toronto, an unbelievable privilege in Norfa Merica's 3rd-4rf largest city. The back lawn is coming in gorgeously plump and plush after we seeded heavily last fall and had the lawn fertilized in early spring by a commercial maintenance firm (Mr. Weed). The grass is so thick and plush I could only take half the width of the mower blade to cut the grass yesterday without blowing a circuit breaker or overheating the motor on my electric lawnmower.

    Then there's a huge canopy being produced by our rhubarb plants. The stalks are coming up bright red and succulent. After that, the greenhouse is full of aspiring growth from our yellow bean, radish, purple kale, purple potatoes and heirloom tomatoes, which include such widely differing varieties as Lemon Boy yellows, Green Zebra green tomatoes, Paul Robeson deep purples and others. We also have some wicked cannibis proudly sprouting including Green Crack and Casey Jones sativa strains and Beach Wedding indica strain. Looking forward to a mind clearing, belly filling summer and fall tending my garden whilst I put the rancid memories of this season behind my self.
